brownie line in the Paris facility and will assist with other
expansion projects in the next few years. The company
produces advanced technology systems, which are a
combination of standard and custom elements. And the
systems require the right people to help maintain them.
" If you're going to buy a race car, you better know how
to drive a race car, " Mr. Keaton said. " If you're going to
buy a Schubert, you better make an investment. Your
run-of-the-mill mechanic, your duct tape and bailing
wire would be an insult to this type of equipment. You
have to make that investment and have that core group
of people get behind it. "
Skinner Baking is heavily reliant on manual labor, and
the three robotic solutions on the line helped the bakery
cut down on labor as well as solve the tricky problem of
depanning coffee cakes in tin foil pans.
" How many depanners have we bought in the last
four years, five years? I can't tell you, " Mr. Keaton said.
" We have bought depanner after depanner after depanner
only to have it fail in the first month. We've spent
millions on trying to depan coffee cakes. Schubert nailed
it. Not only did they nail it, but it's perfect. "
Pans that hold four coffee cakes have holes, allowing
the equipment to push the foil tins up from the
pans, which can then be transferred to belts. As the
product comes out of the freezer, robotic arms pick
each foil Danish tray and place it in a clamshell.
The number of arms on the equipment provides redundancy
and efficiency. Loaded clamshells are then
discharged to existing equipment.

Saving truck miles
Skinner Baking is taking a new approach to several sustainability
issues including packaging and freight. The
company has partnered with its packaging supplier and
is poised to begin producing packaging materials within
a mile of the Omaha plant. That gives the bakery a
chance to control costs, have a reliable packaging source
and increase sustainability for the company.
" Sustainability for us is not just reducing the carbon
footprint, " Mr. Keaton said. " When we vertically integrate,
we're going to take hundreds of thousands of miles
off trucks each year. That is happening when we bring
our packaging in house. Our Paris facility is already producing
the clamshells they make inside those grounds. "
The company also hopes to begin using new packaging
by spring that would cut its plastic use in half, although
that initiative is still in development.
And the bakery has partnered with another Omaha
company to reduce freight costs.
" Right now, we ship everywhere. We have cold storage
in Chicago, Kansas City, the Carolinas, Texas - they're
everywhere, " Mr. Keaton said. " Our goal is to consolidate
distribution centers and catch up with that growth. "
The company plans to finish the consolidation in the
next year. Mr. Keaton said that having constant weekly
routes is an attractive draw for transportation companies
and their drivers because they know where trucks
will be going each week, which gives everyone a consistent
schedule.
He said that sustainability is not just a goal with
